About the Event

Try a new, fun way to crochet & take your skills to the next level. Tunisian or Afghan crochet is a bit like crochet & a bit like knitting, using a long crochet hook it works up fast into a dense & squishy, textured fabric. Each row is completed by working two passes, first working all the stitches onto the hook then working them all off again. There are more textured stitches to achieve than in crochet alone & it’s great for making anything from blankets & cushions to hats, scarves & jumpers.

In this 2-part workshop over two Saturday afternoons, you’ll learn all the essentials & get to grips with the long hook, understand how to read the pattern & make some different textured stitches. You’ll make a start on a wrist warmer in the first class, have some homework to stitch at home & finish off your wrist warmers in the second class.

To get the most from this workshop, you will already be able to crochet including how to chain cast on, make basic crochet stitches & increase & decrease. All materials will be provided in this workshop - you’ll be given to keep a Tunisian crochet hook & cable, DK wool yarn in a choice of colours & stitch markers, all worth £15.

Linda has a huge passion for knitting & crocheting having learned how to do both as a small child & is never happier than when surrounded by yarn. She always has several projects on the go, ranging from socks to jumpers & all sorts in between. She loves to share her passion & knowledge; as well as running many successful workshops & knit & natter groups over the years, she has also run Knitting Surgeries to help with pesky knitting & crocheting problems. Linda also enjoys sewing, especially making her own clothes.
